Elias Khoury
Beirut, Lebanon

Elias Khoury is a Lebanese writer, whom we first encountered at the Los Angeles Times Book Festival, several years ago. We hadn’t heard of him before, but we were struck by his precise and thoughtful insights into writing, literature and the places one was from. He was born into a Greek Orthodox family in Beirut, but in the featured novel, Gate of the Sun, he writes from the point of view of a Muslim Palestinian refugee. His prose swings between Dostoevskyian monlogues that approach a stream of consciousness, and stories & myths that invoke Shehrzade’s 1000 stories.
